AFC Leopards officials have commenced talks with Tusker goalkeeper Boniface Oluoch in an effort to lure the international goalkeeper to their den.

The deal is expected to be sealed within the next fortnight, pending approval from Tusker coach Francis Kimanzi who is believed to be one of the main stumbling block to the move, considering both parties are keen to establish a working relationship.

Leopards is keen to replace Patrick Matasi while Oluoch is itching to move on from what has been a torrid season at the Ruaraka based club.

Last season, Oluoch was dogged with injury and lack of playing time with Kimanzi instead preferring Samuel Odhiambo, Duncan Ochieng’ and Farouk Shikalo in that order.

“Oluoch already views himself as a Leopards player. He expects Tusker to co operate by letting him go without asking for much considering the coach has not given him any single opportunity this season,” a source privy to the negotiations told Nairobi News.

Newly appointed AFC Leopards goalkeeper trainer Iddi Salim is said to have recommended Oluoch to the club’s administration, and has convinced the management the player could offer competition to Wycliffe Kasaya and Martin Musalia next season
